Since we come home from the other side of the planet, our body time have change. Kids had been sleeping so late like pass 12am and I would be up like 2am. I know it’s over a month now since we come home, and we should have adjusted with the Eastern time already. But we are struggling and still can’t go to sleep the usual time. Definitely, we are in big trouble when school starts, I wish that we can get back to our usual time so we won’t be so tired on the first day of school. I will just keep on taking the kids to bed as early as possible and maybe sing them a lullaby to help them fall asleep right away. I will do everything that I could even if I have to get a fender standard stratocaster hss electric guitar to help them fall asleep. That would be crazy huh? Cause it would be too loud. lol! I was saying that I will do my best for us to get back to our time here in the East Coast.
Summer here in the East Coast has been really great! We were able to enjoy the season because it’s not so hot and humid. There were only a couple of times when the temperature reach to 95F and feels like 104F, most of the time it’s below 90F.
When it was scorching hot a couple of weeks ago, I took my kids to the public pool of Codorus Park to cool off. It was Monday afternoon when we went there and I was surprised that there were a lot of swimmers than usual on weekdays. But in spite that, we were still able to enjoy the place and had a great time. I know we just came from a vacation in a tropical country where we spent most of our time in the beach. We should be so full of it already, right? But when it comes to water we are always on the go even though we are so tan already.
So anyhow, below where some of the pics in the pool.
To be musically inclined is not just knowing how to play any musical instruments but also knowing the parts and accessories used of your instruments. Just like the Brass Mouthpieces of a trumpet, there are different kinds of it that suits your needs which you can find online for a very good price. All you have to do is know where to get the best one out there that has the best review.
On the 4th of July, my family and I went to Lake Marburg in Codorus State Park to have a little picnic before we head to town to watch the fireworks. Hubby took a day off that day so we can have a lot of time to play around before the fireworks starts. The original plan was to take the kids bicycling, but when we tried to put some air on their bikes, the tires blew up. I guess because it was so old and thin, good thing it didn’t blew on the kids. Since that ruined our planned, we decided to go picnicking at the Lake. Good thing Hardees’s Fast Food Chain was open that day, we grabbed some foodies from there and head to the Park. It was 5pm when we arrived and I was surprised that there were still lots of people picnicking and swimming in the lake even though there’s a big sign that states ‘No Swimming’. They were swimming like right in front of the sign. This really made me laugh a bit cause I thought Pinoy’s are the only ones who do stuff like that, like ‘Don’t Touch’ and would still touch it. LoL.
Anyway, we found a nice shady spot in the park which was not visible to everybody. Good thing I always have an extra blanket in the car, and a beach chair so I don’t need to worry about it every time we go out in a place like this. I also have the beach umbrella in the car just in case we need it, but that time we didn’t used it because there’s a lot of shady spot in the park.
It was so relaxing, not so humid, and love the fresh breeze from the trees and the lake. We had a hearty dinner and the kids enjoyed their Hardees kids meal. After dinner, we played by the lake, let the kids soak their footsies, and throw rocks in the lake until the kids got their pants wet and was not able to prevent Clayton from getting wet all over. We didn’t brought extra clothes cause we don’t have a plan on coming here, but I let Clayton swim in the lake thinking that I will just wrap him with the blanket later. Jian wanted to swim in the lake too, but I didnt let him cause I dont want him to get wet all over. And he is a big boy to get naked in the lake, unlike Clayton, it’s okay if he swims with only his diaper on.
Anyway, below were our photos at the park.
Clayton can’t help himself to get wet.
Jian trying not to get wet.
Business this days had been really slow due to the prices of commodities went down. Hubby had been trying to save all the junks until it go back up, cause if he will sell them now he will surely lose a big chunk of money. We hope that it would get back up soon so we can continue the business. We sure hope that things are easy on our side of the fence, but things are really tough and we need to work hard in order to survive in this business.
Lucky are those who has established businesses that has the latest end in technology. I bet they have the best workflow that help their business keep afloat such as print brokers who find a software solution that enables them to do their job faster and more efficiently. I hope we can also find a solution to our business that will help us stay ahead in spite the changes of the prices of the commodities.
